    Serves: 4 

    • 2 medium beetroots
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 4 portabello mushroom caps
    • 115g goat cheese
    • 4 sandwich rolls, split and toasted
    • 50g baby spinach leaves
    • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

    1. Preheat an oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Cut the tops off the beetroots and place them in a baking dish with enough water to cover the bottom of the dish.
    3. Roast the beetroots in the preheated oven until they are easily pierced with a knife, 40 to 50 minutes. Refrigerate until cool. Slice and set aside.
    4. Preheat the grill and set the oven rack to the second level from the heat source.
    5. Whisk the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, rosemary and 2 cloves chopped garlic together in a bowl. Spread about half of this mixture over the ribbed side of the portabello mushroom caps; arrange the mushrooms on a baking tray with the ribbed sides facing upwards.
    6. Grill the mushrooms until tender, making sure to not burn the garlic, 5 to 7 minutes. Flip the mushrooms and brush the remaining olive oil mixture over the tops of the caps. Return to the oven and grill until tender, about 5 minutes more.
    7. Spread equal amounts of the goat cheese on one half of each of the sandwich rolls. Top each with a portion of the sliced beetroot and the spinach. Whisk the mayonnaise, garlic and lime juice together in a bowl; spread evenly over the remaining sandwich roll halves and top with one mushroom cap each. Bring the two halves together to form the sandwiches to serve.
